I don't have a problem

In reply to: well you now how it goes

with the 'don't kill killers' group, I've stated before how much more expensive it is to fry one of these jerks than to store them, but they have to get realistic on how much the taxpayers should have to pay in defense of a murderer.

It seems like we were subjected to both expenses for this fine young citizen.

The state assigns a attorney

and an appeal is MANDATORY in Capital cases. Someone that wants to die is also suspect as a nut, which can't be put to death, etc, etc, etc.

You have to keep in mind Jonah, this is CT -- solid blue country up here. I look at this as a step in the right direction. Something is wrong when the guy himself wasn't the one objecting for the past several years.

An interesting defense

In reply to: waited 18 years to execute a man found guilty

While I'm obliged to hold the imposition of death at the hands of men as morally offensive, I read of at least one creative objection being posed by his public defenders. It was reported in my paper this AM that they said he suffered from ''Death Row Syndrome'' which skewed his ability to think rationally. So now, if lawyers can delay a case long enough for a person to become mentally ill they use this acquired ''disease'' as a defense? What a strange twist. Just when I thought some lawyers could stoop no lower in the quest of winning regardless of method or threat to public safety, they continue to amaze.:)
